If you use the entities &lt; and so on, you will get those CHARACTERS (not
markup) in the output.  But they will be excaped characters, not markup, as
you have seen.
If you want to output a table element, you need to output  complete
elements, possibly like this:

<xsl:template match="ROW">

There are other possiblities, but this is the easiest.
